Chester. Vegetarian cuisine not only benefits personal health but the environment, too, by cutting down on the carbon emissions that harm the earth.

To help people forgo quick-grab processed food and meats and get more plant-based foods into their diet, Pastor Erin Moore and the congregation of The First Presbyterian Church in Chester are offering vegetarian cooking classes soon after Easter.

"God desires we care for this good and beautiful creation — human, creature, and creation alike — given to us in the first chapters of Genesis," said the Reverend Moore.

The instructor, Michaela Hayes, is a professionally trained chef, farmer, and owner of Rise and Root Farm in Chester.

There will be three opportunities to attend. Each class, to be held at the church hall, will provide instructions for a main dish, a side/snack, and a healthy dessert. Sample dishes include zucchini fritters with dipping sauce, garlicky lemon green beans, and mango coconut sorbet.

The public is invited to participate in one or all three classes, which are $20 each to help cover costs.
